Amarone Della Valpolicella Ca` Rugate 2008 (93SWJ/90WE) (750ML)
90 WA
"Deep ruby that lightens to crimson at the rim. Fragrant and plush, the scents call to mind briary berries, incense, and freshly crushed black fruits. On the palate, the wine exhibits great verve with a solid impression of acidity and a spicy bite. A touch of warmth on the tongue is par for the course with full-bodied Amarones such as this, but what sets this wine apart are the layers of red and black fruit flavors. With aeration, the wine reveals pleasant notes of old leather, dry kindling and hay. Full-bodied and well integrated....93" SWJ 01/13 "On the dry side, this savory wine is dark and inky, but without the chewy richness that characterizes many wines of the region. It puts forth black pepper, barbecue, leather, tobacco and blackberry flavors...90" WE 11/12 "The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella shows good up-front richness and depth. There is plenty of focus, but this is a pretty subdued style of Amarone. Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint and spices inform the crystalline, vibrant finish. There is a lot to like, even if at times the wine is not especially Amarone-like. The firm tannins could use at least another year of bottle age to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018...90."
